Sunday Special Edition #2

It's been quite a while since I shared a photo that was not captured by one of my own trail cams. When my brother in California sent me this picture from his yard, I knew it was time to resurrect the Sunday Special Edition feature. I've seen bobcats twice in Southeastern Ohio but have never caught one on my trail cams.

David is having one of the same problems I've had recently. He wrote, " I wish that camera had "ignore squirrel" mode. We got 400 pictures and 310 of them were of squirrels!"

Upper End, Section #19

The twins are hanging out around the acorns - no surprise there - but Mama is not with them, or at least not in camera range. We're just about to the time of year when a doe will separate herself from her offspring, getting ready to mate again in November. I think that the last of these pics IS the mother.

Lower End, Section #14

I'm running out of excuses. Camera quiet because it's so dry. Camera quiet because it rained all day, because it was really windy...and now I have a new one. A friend pointed out that every time the creatures of the forest discover a pile of Critter Mix, I move it on them a couple days later when I move the camera. Well, for now anyway, that's my excuse and I'm stickin' to it!

In any case, another quiet day. For those of you familiar with the path, the outhouse is just to the right of the camera for these photos.

Upper End, Section #18

Still moving the camera along the highest stretch of the path. After a couple more camera moves, the path will take a sharp left turn as it begins to parallel a deep valley. Today I moved the camera under some oak trees, and the winds brought acorns raining down on my head.

Find the Chipmunk ;)

The leaf blower in action!

Lower End, Section #13 and Upper End, Section #17

Not much to see today, other than some Fall colors and the fact that the path needed leaf-blown when these photos were taken. I did that yesterday.
